Abstract:Results of fatigue tests on eight sets of a Nickel base alloy, M-252, are reported. Each set was prepared using a different method of surface finishing. The ground specimens were flat plates with rectangular cross-section. All other specimens had circular cross-sections. The mechanically polished and rolled specimens behaved in fatigue as would be expected on the basis of the surface hardness and surface roughness. A large decrease was found in fatigue limit of sets with a ground surface as compared to the mechanically polished or rolled sets. This decrease in fatigue limit is thought to be due in part to tensile residual stresses near the surface and to the difference in the cross-sectional shape of specimens. There may also be some deleterious effect of the grinding on the surface material which is not reflected by the simple surface hardness and surface roughness measurements. No effort is made to quantitatively determine the importance of each of these factors, since some work relevant to this problem is still in progress.
